120 Ollies a week

Post by Brainiac »

Day 1.
I watched Tony Hawk in "until the wheels fall off". His level of discipline is admirable and his pattern to repetitiously perform the same trick over and over and over influenced me to consider a pattern of practicing 40 ollies per day. Ollies and height are the basis of most all other tricks.. During initial ollies, I jumped sidewalk cracks. I've been able to build my ollies up to jump over my cap.

Day 2.. missed
Day 3.. missed

Day 4. Renamed this thread from 40 ollies/day to 120 ollies/week since I've been missing/skipping too many days. If I can practice 40 ollies in a day 3 x per week.. see if that results in improvement.

With ollie practice, I was able to roll up the side of a pyramid and ollie at the top.

One of the side effects is running out of holes in my belt,
so I have to make new ones as my waist gets smaller :)..
